Finding fun family bonding activities that everyone will enjoy can be a challenge especially as the kids get older. But spending time together as a family is important. Bonding time is important for both kids and parents even as the kids become teens and young adults. Children who experience family bonding time often perform better in school and have fewer behavioral issues. As an adult, I can tell you that bonding with the kids is a great way to reduce stress.

Fun Family Bonding Activities with NASCAR
If you love motorsports or have a kid who LOVES cars, NASCAR® has an amazing way to share that passion with your kids, thru NASCAR Acceleration NationTM. The website and app, which is available on Android and iPhone, features fun games, info on races, details on cars, and learning materials about the science of racing! If you’re thinking about the importance of family bonding, here are a few suggestions.
Who knows the most about NASCAR® in your family? Check out the fun facts on the website and app to create your own trivia game. Did you know that The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR®) was founded in 1948 by Bill France Sr. in Daytona Beach, FL? Or that NASCAR® sanctions more than 1,200 races in more than 30 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico and Europe?
Learn the Science
Did you know that NASCAR® isn’t just about fast cars? There’s an awful lot of science behind the racing. You can learn more about aerodynamics, the study of airflow and the slope of the race track. Or, why not get into a discussion about measurement and learn more about miles versus kilometers. Plus, kids can learn about the science of speed and more through videos on the website and app. This is a great way to get in some STEM learning.
Coordination is a valuable skill for every child to learn, and I know that mine can use improvement! Visit the NASCAR Acceleration NationTM and watch their bean bag toss, lug nut stacking challenge, and the hat toss challenge. Then you can recreate them at home in some fun parent and child bonding activities.
Watch the Races
Of course, half of the fun of NASCAR® is watching the cars race! If you’re lucky enough to live near one of their racetracks, you’ll want to make it a family outing. If not, you can find lots of amazing NASCAR® racing on the app and website to watch.
Download the app and visit the website today to get started. While you’re there, make sure you enter to win! There is a 1st prize of $400, 2nd of $150, and 3rd of $75 of NASCAR gift cards. Open to residents of US & Canada, and ends Sept 8th, 2017. The contest is open to US and Canada only. 18 and over.
I hope you’ll enjoy a few of these fun family bonding activities!
